So I'm still going strong on the juicing with no cheating and heading into my 3rd week.
I've had a couple hiccups.
I had oral surgery and got my wisdom teeth pulled out - all four of them. Thankfully juicing is easy for the recovery because I can't eat solid foods anyhow while healing. With all the nutrients going into my body from the juice...I expect to heal pretty quickly.
Just the night before the surgery, my father passed away. The family felt that it was important to go ahead with it, so I went and this weekend I've been stuck in recovery mode at home so I juiced enough for a few days the day after because I expect on Monday that I'll be joining the rest of my family in making preparations and I'm not sure how hectic it's going to be...plus I want to have time to mourn and go through the grieving process with the rest of my loved ones.
A couple discoveries I've made along the way...
1. Arugala is not the best in a juicer.
2. Curly kale isn't as good as Lacinto kale for juicing.
Both create too much pulp.
